Extensive extension and alterations to a family home

Client Testimonial

In January 2008, after being recommended to us by several satisfied clients, we decided to appoint André Bisson of A7 Design to look into any possibilities of extending and altering our house, we loved the location and the grounds of our property, however the layout and usable space of our house did not suit our lifestyle or our young family.  

In essence our brief was a simple one; we wanted to create more space and hopefully include a laundry room, and if possible to re-organize the internal layout to provide a better flow to the house as a whole.

Instantly a concept was being born in André’s mind, the main element being symmetry, whilst incorporating a feature entrance hall and two imposing gable walls on the approach to the house from the driveway. This concept together with the clever use of space and major re-organization of the internal layout most certainly exceeded our initial brief and expectations.

18 months on... We are so thrilled with the final result, our house has been given a new lease of life; natural daylight now floods the inner areas during the day, whilst the contemporary modern lighting design transforms the house yet again in the evening. We simply cannot believe the transformation that has taken place to how it previously was, the bonus being we have not actually moved from the location to which we enjoy so much.

We are truly thankful to André for every aspect of his involvement with this project and would not hesitate in recommending his professional services to anyone who may be looking for inspiration and an innovative design to carry out a transformation of their home.
